First calf for 2013- Canadian has Black Heifer

This isn't how it is supposed to happen but the miracle here is that little heifer is alive at all.  She was born the night of the tenth of April while I was flying back from lobbying in Juneau.  It was below zero that night and there was 20 inches of new snow on the ground.  She was pretty stiff when I found her the next day but got her sucking by putting mom (Canadian by name) in the squeeze chute.  Bella (the new girl) was moved down to be bottle fed and nursed on Ade the dairy cow because mother refused to go into the chute after two times.
